In a pedestrian street to the west of the Cathedral sits the Cariatides. A perfect town wine car. Good and changing selection of well chosen wines, simple eats - the planches of meets or cheeses or both go down rather well with the wine - and friendly for both locals and tourists. Nice in summer when you can sit outside... More

We had lunch here while on a day trip to Quimper. We were quite sharp (around 12:15) and by the time we left the restaurant was full. The menu of the day looked good so we opted for that. The starter was a chicken salad which was tasty but nothing earth shattering. The main course fish dish was excellent as... More

Lovely meal, good service. Walked out of a cafe in the square as it was dirty & so glad we did as we found this place instead. Characterful surroundings & clean!

It was lovely with friendly staff. We only had a few beers and tea ( only black tea available ). Cappucino available, no cafe latte. Historic building. Dinner menu looked good and reasonably priced. If we had more time we would go during busier hours and enjoy dining too.

Worst service ever! I will go back to Quimper but never again to this place. The lady waitress had bad temper and no fear to show it to customers. She removed us from a table when we were already sat because we were 2 and the table was for 4 people, even when that table was given by another of... More

Very friendly staff who provided a high chair for our toddler. The food was very yummy. I had hake which was delicious whilst my husband had steak & my older child chicken. These were from the plat de jour. The food was reasonably well priced too and the atmosphere relaxed and didn't feel uncomfortable with the children. The service was... More

Just off the main square on a quiet street. Fantastic value menu du jour with a couple of choices for each course. Pate and steak were both very French and good. Salad then cod also great. Good choices of wine by the glass. Friendly waiter.

We had many a happy early evening outside the bar/restaurant with a glass of Rose chatting and people watching and ate here on spec one evening. I love the set price menu which features whatever comes from the market that day. It's good value and very tasty and although the menu is small it is always appealing. A firm favourite... More

We had a superb lunchtime meal in this restaurant. My French is not fluent, however, greetings exchanged, we were shown to a table. The food was absolutely delicious and I even pushed the boat out and ordered tartare be boef. First time eating this and enjoyed it very much. Having read a previous review stating that staff were rude, I... More

The moules (mussels) à la paysanne here were OUTSTANDING!!! Went back and had them two other times! The first time my husband tried the lamb dish and that was also excellent. The second time he had the mussels and loved them as much as I did. The third time he tried something else that was fine, but not superb. Service... More
